Cross arms also have a slightly rough textured background field with a narrow, smooth, raised outer border. Upward pointing, sword blades and hilts emanate between the crosses arms and have a Luftwaffe eagle clutching a swastika affixed to each. Sword blades have a central embossed rib and hilts have fine diagonal pebbled lines.
